GILBERT, Arizona (November 10, 2022)—In conjunction with Veterans Day this November, SYNERGY HomeCare has launched a new education and outreach campaign to raise veteran awareness about home care benefits for which they may be eligible.
SYNERGY HomeCare has more than 400 agencies nationwide. Following a concerted credentialing effort, the majority of these locations are contracted with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide home care services to eligible veterans and their families.
“Our new veterans initiative extends SYNERGY HomeCare’s long-standing commitment to providing personalized and compassionate care to veterans and their families,” said Rich Paul, chief partnership officer for SYNERGY HomeCare. “With the vast majority of our agencies contracted with the VA, we are uniquely positioned to serve those who served. We’re honored to be a trusted partner in helping our veterans access the quality home care support they deserve.”
The cornerstone of SYNERGY HomeCare’s awareness efforts is a new webpage that outlines VA benefits that cover home care services for eligible veterans, including information on the VA Aid and Attendance, Housebound Pension, and Homemaker and Home Health Aide Care benefits. The site provides educational content to help veterans and their surviving spouses determine eligibility and access care, as well as a complement of free family caregiver support resources, all in a simple and easy-to-navigate user experience.
Among the resources available is a special edition of SYNERGY HomeCare Magazine honoring veterans, featuring an introduction from retired Army Infantry officer Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Steve Scroggs, president of the HighThrive Foundation.
“Currently, there are more than 18 million military veterans living in the U.S. Because many servicemen and women leave the military and pursue civilian careers, they may forget about their VA benefits,” Scroggs said. “They may not realize that there are a number of VA programs that cover the cost of home care to help them with things that may have become more challenging as they have gotten older. Some VA benefits also cover the cost of respite care for family caregivers, who may be juggling a job and a family with caregiving.”
